Always up-to-date with market and client needs.
The specialist knowledge offered by our institutes provides a solid basis for problem-solving with partners and clients. We adopt a highly practical and tailored approach to implementing research proposals, whether in the form of individual undergraduate dissertations investigating specific topics or interdisciplinary projects lasting many years and dealing with complex issues.
Stability of self-organizing net fragments as inductive bias for next-generation deep learning
We recently released "A Theory of Natural Intelligence", proposing a possible key to the emergence of intelligence in biological learners. Goal of this fellowship is to develop a technical implementation of the concept of self-organizing netfragments within contemporary deep artificial neural nets. ...
ReFoCus – Innovative application of bio-processing for nutritionally enhanced and minimally processed animal-free food products
We target to develop centre-of-the-plate food products through an innovative application of texture- and nutrient-optimized bio-processing, assisted by data-driven process optimization. From sustainability perspective, the product aims for minimal processing and up-cycling of agro-food side streams. ...
Publications are another key aspect of knowledge transfer between research and industry, and relevant outcomes are published in suitable outlets with the agreement of our partners.
